With my Glass Dharma drinking straw giveaway nearly at its end and Summer Solstice a mere six days away, this last week of Spring seems like an appropriate time for me to exalt citrus. Yes, it’s true that I love citrus all of the time. However, it has been some time since I have taken a moment to focus exclusively on the simplicity of lemons and limes – both of which I adore immensely.

For those who may not be so well versed in the differences between these two blissfully bright sunshine citrus fruits, I offer a technical comparative analysis chart:
Lemons & Limes

Interesting, ne?

I find it a bit odd how so many people seem to mix them up all of the time, or proclaim that they are mostly the same – especially when one compares the nutrient content and flavour profile of each. In consideration of these factors, it is fairly easy to see that each of them is quite different from the other.

…and now for something completely different:

Lemon Water Health Benefits

 

 

Also of note: A very warm glass of water with freshly squeezed organic lemon juice actually soothes me to sleep at bedtime. In the morning I awaken feeling purified, refreshed and incredibly replenished.
 

 

 

 

 

…and finally, please enjoy one of my favourite songs for “just another rainy Sunday afternoon.”
